Consistent or restrictive? To go through 5 albums with sales so linear raises questions. It’s safe to say that her fan base is loyal. If we assume that purchasers of each new album bought immediate its predecessor, this also means that Gomez is completely failing to entice a new audience.
Is her growth already over? These album sales are decent, but they aren’t good enough to put her among the top recording artists. Thus, if she isn’t growing anymore she may finish up rated as a celebrity rather than a true music star.
